Poetry. Some say mad postcards. Some say an international call and response, a sort of too-full screen of blues. Some say whispers. In fact, AMERICAN DRONE, this American poet's first full collection in a long time, takes rap, hip-hop, folk and pop tradition, film and daily news as his guide toward subjects (and forms). Former laureate Baron Wormser (Paris Review Editions/Houghton Mifflin) says Peter Money has taken on full-bore, straight-up, flat-out the necessary charge to the poet in these global/electronic times.... He has the chops and range...from page-long, all-verbal-hands-on-deck meditations and urgings to brief, exquisite lyrics Peter Money has] an enormous appetite for language as a transfiguring force and poems...to inhabit. The three distinct sections of AMERICAN DRONE are dense, reflective, and--in the final part--fiercely intimate as they own their own space and honor everyone's right to what's personal.
